More storms in our country. More people hurt and homes lost. It hurts to hear these things.
I talked to a young lady at our phone provider store the other day. Told her of growing up in ‘tornado alley’ in St. Louis, Missouri. When we talked, I learned that not a lot is known about tornadoes by some here in Texas. I remember having to open the apartment windows just a little to avoid explosive decompression. That is why so many destroyed buildings look like kindling. A direct hit by a tornado is not something that is easily prepared for. The TV stations warn people not to hide under the overpasses because the suction of the storm would drag people out, yet people hide there anyway.
Growing up I saw yellow skies, green, pink, you name it. I learned that when the winds get still while it blows elsewhere, pray. The hail that I showed in an earlier post is only one thing that damages buildings. The wind, the vacuum from the storm also are major causes of damage. I’m no expert, I’ve just lived through it.
